Hot is good and dry heat is even better, so the 38 degrees predicted for today won’t keep the lovers of the free courtyard music sessions at the Fremantle Arts Centre away.

On from 2-4pm this afternoon are The Tommyhawks with their melodic folk pop, mixed with raucous punk music. Expect catchy songs with blistering saxophone solos in the lovely setting under the trees at the FAC.

The cafe, the bar and the pizza bar are all open for the family-friendly event.

I don’t think I have ever seen more people attending a Sunday music courtyard session at the Fremantle Arts Centre than today.

Young and old turned up in their hundreds for the last concert of the year, and are  still dancing the afternoon away on the hip swirling Congolese music of Soukouss Internationale. Great music! Great atmosphere!

The concert is still going till 4pm, so head out there fast! I had to leave early because hay fever won yet again. ; >(

MARKET AND MUSIC FREO SUNDAY FUN

 

gg-11

 

It is sooooo much nicer to go food shopping at the Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market than going to a sterile shopping centre, and the last one of the year is on this Sunday December 23 from 8am till midday.

So get on your airconditioned bikes or in your hot cars and head to Fremantle College on Lefroy Road for all that fresh produce and yummy breakfast offers.

And from 2-4pm sit in the shade of the plane trees in the courtyard of the Fremantle Arts Centre for the free concert by The Last Fair Deal with powerhouse lead singer Ofa Fotu and listen to the great blues and soul.

Em Burrows returns to the FAC with a six piece band, so expect sweeping synths, haunting sax and Em’s contralto voice.

The music feast starts of with pop duo Segue, so it will be an afternoon of experimental pop.
